From the sealed VHS box:
A Warlock’s Home Is His Castle… Forever!
A perversely evil 18th century warlock who — after placing a curse on the village women, resulting in a progeny of mutant children — is burned by the townspeople at the stake. A century after the human barbecue, the warlock’s great, great grandson returns to the family castle where he falls under Gramps’ ghost’s spell… beginning the evil all over again!
